L.A. Times: Trump leads, but it’s temporary, or something

hillary-clintonIn the wake of FBI Director James Comey’s betrayal of the public trust, a rash of new polls, some significant, show Donald Trump taking the lead over Hillary Clinton.

Rasmussen has Trump in the lead by seven points at 44%-37% over former secretary/senator/first co-conspirator and traveling pantsuit Clinton. It is the pollster’s third survey that puts the billionaire ahead, the first with a decisive lead.

CBS/NYT have Trump and Clinton tied (which is a dead giveaway, if you ask me) at 40%-40%, and Quinnipiac’s swing-state sampling has Clinton dumping a nine-point lead and being edged out by the Donald.

L.A. Times:

It comes amid a flurry of other surveys, both nationally and in battleground states, that show support for the former secretary of State declining since last week when FBI Director James B. Comey characterized her handling of classified material while in that office as “extremely careless.” Comey also said her conduct and that of her aides did not clearly violate the law or warrant prosecution.

What isn’t known is whether the new surveys are capturing Clinton at a low that will prove temporary….

Which, of course, is true of just about any poll ever taken on any candidate who has ever run, up until the night before the election.

Trump continues to face formidable obstacles to winning. Even as new surveys show the race tightening, he has not significantly increased his support: Since February, when he began to dominate the Republican primaries, his backing in head-to-head matchups with Clinton has rarely risen above 40%. …

Well, but of course …

The Times buried the numbers deep within the second-to-last paragraph after spending five inches declaring that Trumps edge (43%-40%) is WITHIN THE MARGIN OF ERROR, and may be subject to change with a Sarandon reversal.

    Don’t kid yourself, forces are aligned against Trump (especially the media) which will give Hillary some advantage. Fortunately for Trump, he is not running against a dishonest but media savvy opponent like Barack Obama. Instead he is running against a dishonest alienating opponent who most people (even her reluctant allies) recognize as being Crooked as Hell.
